This remaster is exceptionally good. From a technical standpoint the levels, stereo spread, etc are all beautiful. If you don't already know, the first three Carbon Based Lifeforms albums were all remixed from the ground up with the original session files. While the first two sound weirdly different, I think they hit the mark with this remaster. In a promo interview for this reissue series I saw they wanted to, in a sense, bring Hydroponic Garden and World Of Sleepers up to date with Interloper, but in doing this I think they lost a lot of the ambient qualities, tones, and textures that made those first two albums amazing. But this reissue is a more accurate translation of the music. As others have pointed out, the tracks unfortunately do not segue like the original. But on the other hand, this is a less critical detail than it was for the first two albums, since most of the Interloper tracks feel a little more individual and song-like than the previous works. I have both CD versions of this album and honestly listen to this version more because of how much more expansive the sounds are. I understand the completionist aspect of collecting the original for the superior packaging and track transitions, but if you can't justify spending a ridiculous amount of money for a CD, then you aren't missing anything as far as the music goes.
Very nice to here a remastered version too. 5 stars anyway for this masterpiece, timeless music. I am well satisfied with the reissue but would like the Ultimea version too... just a nerd cd fetish. I am not the only one...
I'm always happy to have a nicely remastered album, but I don't get why they basically reworked it for these reissues. Removing the track segues so they're all separate tracks was a particularly tedious decision as it ruins the magical flow of the original. It's good to own the album, but looks like I'm still going to have to save up to get an Ultimae version...
